Four Holes Swamp - May 9-11 2014

Photograph an old growth bottomland full of trees that are thousands of years old. Hike beneath the ancient canopy to find wildlife of all types and striking vistas. Photographers will have unprecedented access to this exclusive location, and receive direct instruction from me and acclaimed conservation photographer and founder of Meet Your Neighbours, Clay Bolt. Combining macro, wildlife, and landscape photography, participants will leave Four Holes Swamp with a wide arsenal of new techniques and stunning images.

This workshop is made for photographers of all skill levels, from the professional to the amateur. It will be a highly active weekend of hiking and paddling through bottomlands to capture fleeting light and illusive wildlife. A full list of FAQs and what to bring will be sent to each participant upon registration.
